Two configurations for FBA



  • Hi there,   I built a cabinett with some scrap wood I had here, and I can rotato a 23" LCD monitor horizontal/vetical. I allready found that I could change the orientation in FBA_libretro in the menu. However I want to have to separate configurations, one for horizontal games and one for vertical games. Is that possible in Recalbox?   Thanks Hans

    Hello it 's not possible to create 2 configurations for FBA LIBRETRO but you can create configuration per-game core, there is an screen option (but I dont know what) Run game. In retroarch Menu (hotkey+B) Menu settings > configuration > use per-game core option > ON Save ON EXIT > ON Quick Menu > Core Options. Modified screen -> Default (look if rotate is) Visionner l'image create game-option file exit (hotkey+b) exit game and run game again sorry for my english I speak a little bit



  • hmm. Thanks for the advice, but that's not exactly what I need. I would need two different configs for the same core (FBA). Could that be done in recalbox? It would allow playing everything horizontal and just the vertical FBA/MAME games horizontally. Could a new (virtual) emulator be added to recalbox, like FBA_vertical? Thanks again!



  • hey @Hanswurst, just a question, which "configuration" do you mean ? FBA_libretro or inputs ? I'm sure i can find you the answer if you give the schematics of how you mounted the screen + its rotation ^^ I'm sure people would love this in the "Your recalbox" section 🙂

    More details. Need details what config are you need ?



  • Hi again, first @Subs: I posted some pics and videos of the WIP cabinett in the "Your recalbox" section. So basically what I want to achieve is that eveything runs normal, like on any other horizontal cabinet. Emulation Station: horizontal, Consoles: horizontal, FBA (horizontal games): horizontal, like any other system. However, I want the vertical games to run "vertical", i.e. with a vertical FBA configuration. In the second video you can see, how I change the settings by hand. If FBA can't handle this automatically, I would love to see something like a "FBA_vertical" roms directory. Games put into this directory could then be run vertical. Thanks you for your support!

    Hello I repeat : you need to use DIP SWITCHES OPTIONS IN FBA LIBRETRO CORE per-game core option for each game AND TO MODIFY SCREEN OR FLIP SCREEN OR CABINET OPTION only for vertical game. http://blog.recalbox.com/forums/topic/two-configurations-for-fba/#post-33576 I think that the game will rotate automatically. EXEMPLE : Flip Screen option : http://www.mamedb.com/game/gunbird Cabinet option : http://www.mamedb.com/game/1943kai
